Thames Whale Watering Can on eBay
Status: Beware of fakes This
is just pathetic:
Opportunists have tried to capitalise on the hysteria surrounding the Thames whale by putting a bogus watering-can up for sale on eBay, with a starting price tag of £1,924. The unidentified owner insisted the item was used in the attempted rescue of the 19ft northern bottle-nosed female whale to keep her moist and comfortable. But the fake sale outraged the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, who spent 36 hours and £100,000 trying to save the sea mammal's life and who were selling their own watering-can online.
Here's the real watering can
for sale. Bidding is currently up to £99,701.25. (I hope that's not because of fake bids.)
